Start 2023 with a Clean Slate: New Year’s Eve Vajrasattva Practice
As we face another challenging year, Venerable Robina Courtin will lead us through the powerful Vajrasattva practice to refresh our minds and set us up with a clean slate. She’ll describe the practice within the framework of the four opponent powers, explaining how each of the four purifies the four ways that karma ripens. For those of us wishing for full enlightenment, sooner than later, this purification practice gets us closer to it. Using the Vajrasattva method to clean up one’s mistakes at year-end will prepare those of us who have a habit of making New Year's Resolutions. From this experience with Ven. Robina, we will come away with a new perspective on resolutions altogether.
